cool and calm, but a little too cool for most of us. this image is telling. romney is staring down the president and the audience, while the professorial president just staring down. what was athat about? here it to answer that and decode our tics and grins and gestures is chris oel rich to give us insight into it, and what the president can improve on in the next debate. thank you for joining us. >> thank you for having me. >> the first thing that i noticed is romney really used his hands a lot, in almost all of his speaking there was some gesturing going on. at the same time, the president had a little interesting stance with his feet with one foot sort of back behind the podium. what do you make of this hands for romney and feet for obama situation? >> well, that's a great observation. for mitt romney a very different mitt romney. that's what we saw in this debate. mitt romney most of the time his hands are down at his sides. he used gestured to get his point across and the use of emblems to bring home a he message. check please. if he had three points, he'd say one, two, three
for health care. and he gets bogged down in the details, and even though romney lied repeatedly and sounded like a doefer on crack, he was just intense and focused on the attack. and what is also funny about the spread between people that thought romney won versus people who thought obama won is i also think democrats are more likely to admit, yeah, okay. our guy won, than during kerry -- when bush got crushed. i don't think a lot more republicans are going to cling to their -- their good. >> stephanie: that's a good example, and i have seen others this weekend and look at how that turned out. so i don't think it means that it is over. >> no, no. i have not changed my opinion that obama is still going to win the election. i don't think it is that much of a game changer, but i want it to be a big crushing victory. i want it to be something where obama cannot be denied the mandate going in where republicans at some point just look absurd constantly blocking things. >> stephanie: and we'll see if people were right about the rope a dope. >> oh that is so hopeful. i love cling
plan as just one more version of, quote, trickle down economics. romney did some major cleanup work yesterday on the comment that had been the most damaging to his campaign in the last few weeks, the 47% comment. >> clearly, in a campaign with hundreds if not thousands of speeches and question and answer sessions, now and then you'll say something that doesn't come out right. in this case i said something that is just completely wrong. i absolutely believe, however, that my life has shown that i care about a hundred percent. >> that's what he said. everything he said there he said was completely wrong. does raise this question. how many resets can a presidential nominee have? take a look at romney's shifting responses over the last three weeks on 47% to put it all in perspective. >> as i point out i recognize that among those that pay no tax approximately 47% of americans i'm not likely to be highly successful with a message of lowering taxes. you know, it's not elegantly stated. let me put it that way. i am speaking off the cuff in response to a question. i've got a very effective
big bird! romney could have water boarded aladdin, put down blue, deported dora the explorer, and still won walking away. romney won with the sound up. >> you're entitled, as a president, to your own airplane and house, but not to your own facts. >> romney won with the sound off. dude, he's yelling at you. look up! look up! what are you looking at? what are you writing that's so important? what are you doing? oh, that's nice. i didn't realize. that is impressive work. i didn't realize that. maybe you could give that to mitt romney as a souvenir of night he crushed you in that debate. >> that is some nice work. stephen colbert dancing with "glee" last night. can we listen to this? here's colbert coming into the studio after the romney debate performance. ♪ really feeling it with colbert. he zeroed in on the tax plan romney laid out. the proposal was a bit difference from the one prom romney previously pitched on the trail. >> before the debate, mitt's campaign said, romney will come across as empathetic. but here's what mitt's been promising for the last two years. tax cuts

into the debate romney was down a handful in florida, handful or more in virginia, handful or more in ohio where you just showed the president moments ago in wisconsin. come to the electoral map, this is the big question. first of three debates, gives republicans energy at a time many of them were beginning to worry about the top of the ticket. so will it change the state of play? that is the thing to watch going forward into the vice presidential debate and then round two and three i would say the state to watch most is this one, ohio. governor romney needs to win it. had the president had a decisive debate performance last night, a lot of democrats are thinking he could have put ohio away because he was up five, six, maybe seven points there. that's not the case today, wolf. the president could have maybe put away a couple battleground state, he didn't do. the chance for mitt romney, can he capitalize? and how will the president try to recover? >> he certainly missed a golden opportunity i thought to solidify some of the standing in some of those key battleground states and he avoided some of
post." the latest poll shows among likely voters the president leads 49% to 46% for romney. that's down net two points from two weeks ago when the president was up by five. to what to you attribute the movement, chuck todd? >> well, first of all, the more important number has always been the president sitting at 49% or 50%. i would go through his job approval rating at 49%, his ballot test at 49%, those converge, and that's what matters and 49% puts you in the, quote, re-elect zone. what's affecting romney, this is something we've been watching there is an enthusiasm gap among core republican voters among core democratic groups. overall there's a ten-point advantage among those republicans who call themselves nines or tens when on a scale of one to ten asked how interested they are in this election. there's been a ten-point gap pretty consistent all year. that's why for instance on the registered voter number, the president has a seven-point lead and it shrinks more than in half down to three, because the republican vote is more enthusiastic and they get through our likely voter screens
the president and mitt romney will hunker down over the next few days as they huddle with senior advisers to prepare for wednesday's high-stakes showdown in denver. in recent days aides to both campaigns have been bending over backwards to compliment their opponent and downplay expectations for their side. new jersey governor chris christie set a high bar for romney. >> this is the first moment when the american people are going to be able to see these two guys side by side, laying out their vision unfiltered. and i think that's going to be a powerful moment for mitt romney. >> reporter: and an adviser for romney says they're preparing for romney to come armed. >> they've been practicing zingers for months. >> reporter: abc news political analyst matt dowd says at this point, romney and obama advisers are style over substance. >> the debates that have changed people's minds have all been about physical characteristics and mannerisms really in the modern age and not substance or policy issues. >> reporter: both have challenges. the president needs to keep his answers short to avoid soundin
that they are not changing strategy, they're doubling down on their strategy of going after mitt romney. >> yeah, if you thought it was ugly so far, just hold on. and the problem the democrats have is that, what mitt romney really did in denver is he demolished to a certain extent their main campaign strategy. their goal was to go out there and present him in a negative light and spent enormous amount of money, saying this guy is an rapascious candidate and presenting barack obama as the alternative. he took a sledgehammer. they can't run on the economy, on the president's legislative record, people don't like it. now they're going to go straight after his character, suggest he has a credibility issue, call him a liar, say that he's a flip-flopper and that's where they'll go for the rest of the election. >> kim is touching on a really important point, which is fear is such a big part of the obama campaign. i mean, he is trying to gin up fear for people who, you know, you have 23 million people out of work and tell them, by the way, this guy is going to take away any chance for health care? >> when romne
in virginia. he had been down four or five before. the bad news for romney in these three polls is that in ohio, a state that is critical, romney strategists think they have to win florida and ohio to get to 270 electoral votes. he's still down eight percentage points, and what we've seen across these polls is that obama is increasingly competitive with romney on who would do best to handle the economy. but the fact that we've got a little bit of movement nationally and movement in florida and virginia tells me that there's still some play in this electorate, in this contest, and that's the hope for romney going into this debate tonight. >> what do you think happened in florida versus in ohio? because for a while, they were both tracking. i mean, florida by the gallup poll, he was down by nine points, romney was. what happened in florida? >> there was a poll last week that showed florida down nine for romney. i think that's too high. the campaign has begun advertising -- the romney campaign, that is, advertising more heavily in florida than they had been previousism we see in ou
looking down at his podium take notes. and squandered easy opportunities to go after romney. such as this moment. >> i like pbs. i like big bird. i like you too. but i am not going to keep on spending money on things to borrow money from chon ina to p for it. a wide opening. the president took more than 14 hours to come up with a come? back. >> thank goodness, somebody is finally getting tough on big bird. it is about time. >> reporter: many top democrats suggest one of the problems may be one common to incumbents, the president has lived in a bubble, rarely challenged. the obama campaign acknowledged they will conduct a reassessment before the next debate. jake tapper, abc news, traveling with the president in madison, wisconsin. >> such a fascinating point, so true if you think about it, the president inyears , you don't stand next to some one saying you are wrong. challenged. and, that has to be a very different situation and mind set for the president. it was an interesting point. >> you know what i want to know what percentage of the country understood anything in that
term. he just tried to talk romney down. and the numbers are a moment where he's going to have to do that and say why are these numbers bad and why will they be better if you re-elect me? >> gene, both camps have not really talked about the next four years. the romney people have been open about it up until recently when i think "the wall street journal" and a lot of conservatives have smoked them out, so they're getting a little more specific on deductions and a few other issues. but you could say the same thing about the president's team. they made the calculated decision to not talk about what they're going to do over the next four years. and that puts an incumbent in the position to do nothing but defend the last four years, doesn't it? >> well, it seems to me, look, what do people want to hear? i mean, really, what do people want to hear? why are they going to vote for one candidate or the other? it's what they're going to do over the next term. you know, we said on this program months and months ago that the winner of this election would be or at least should be the candidate w
down on election day. >> we have a debate coming up, nina. what is your advice to mitt romney? how to seat gain ascendancy >> - how does he gained ascendancy? >> he has to have a real moment. i am sure they are rehearsing many spontaneous moments. obama is not spending a lot of time prepping gas to run the country -- >> oh, yeah, he is running the jaay-ntry out of ohio -- z takes a lot of effort. run the country, my foot. >> as i said, obama is not a gifted debater the way he is a gifted or tour. there is a shot here. >> you are the debate coach, evan. what do you tell them? >> romney has one goal, to the actual human being. it is not impossible. [laughter] >> "mitt, you are a human being." do you want to tell your grandchildren iran in 2012. i don't care if it is embracing simpson-bowles, whatever it is. he has got to give a sense of where the country goes from here. we don't care about where we are better off for years ago. america does not know where we are going and one of these guys has to give them that. >> wrong and wrong. my son has an axiom -- america alex the coolest cand
that president obama's initial level was a bit down. mitt romney was concise. he was assertive. we had seen all those things during the republican primary season. i wasn't surprised about that, but was surprised president obama didn't have the energy level to meet it. >> we had mentioned the surveys that have come out. and most people who watched it seemed to think that romney won. steve handelsman showed us that headline. when does that translate, or does it translate in the polling? >> that's the great question. we haven't seen ygreat surveys. some folks believe this electorate is locked in there. then again, this could end up having some type of change. i would just warn people a little bit, that sometimes you end up having this one debate, we saw george w. bush lose his first debate in 2004. we saw ronald reagan lose his debate against walter mondale in 1984, and those two were able to win the election. >> was this as chris christie said today, a wipeout or give the president a new opening? >> it gives him a potential new opening. the biggest thing we're going to see, and we won't be sure a
it where romney was always looking directly the a the president and the president was looking down, frankly like a kid being scolded. it was not a very attractive comparison from the president's point of view. martha: we are looking at the split screen and it does not do a disservice to everybody, it's what we saw over and over and over last night. let's play a clip when they talked about simpson-bowles last night. i want to get your thoughts on that. >> i have my own plan. it's not the same as simpson-bowles. in my view the president should have grabbed it. if he wanted to make adjustments do it take it, fight for it go to congress. >> that's what we've done, is we've made some adjustments, we are going to congress witness right now. >> you've been president four years. you said you'd cut the deficit in half, it's now four years later we still have trillion dollar deficits. martha: what about that, chris. >> for people who aren't following like this. simpson-bowles was the presidential commission. he was in charge of this commission. it was his idea. after they gave their proposals last de
romney. >> this whole race will be turned upside down thursday morning. >> what are you doing, christie? for god sake's if romney fails to meet those heavy expectations he's going to lose the general election and the republican party and that's going to leave open 26 -- oh. >> setting aside for 2016, part of me applauds the fact that christie is saying what everybody believes which it's a proving ground for mitt romney. and some part of me believes maybe it would be good if mitt romney said you know what, tomorrow night is a big deal and there going to be some wins and losses and i want to deliver a powerful and specific message about what i want to offer and the path forward. >> you have to be able to do that. i think all that chris christie, all that was missing from the interview was a christie 2016 t-shirt. he's the worst surrogate ever. >> or maybe the best. >> i don't know. i think it is true that the stakes are higher for mitt romney. what the president wants is stays is. if the race remains as it is now he's in good shape. romney needs a big moment and the risk is he'll push too
down, you would be able to tell the winner of the debate. mitt romney always looking at president and we're told that he had been coached in the debating address the president, walk specifically through your plans, point one point two, point three. he stuck to that. mitt romney -- president obama looked down most of the time. even when mitt romney made a joke in the expense. he still kept looking down. it begs a question when was mitt romney the last lump or at least this mitt romney the exraint we're bringing john editor in chief in to the conversation that complaint about mitt romney was that he could not stay on message. that he could not talk about the middle class. he could not talk about jobs, that he could not come off as likable. on every one of those tonight, check, check, check, check. why tonight? >> and begin we shall obviously much more time than we have. it seems to me that he in order to get a performance like this, he has to get himself in a sigh displace in intellectual place. he has to organize his mind and spirit, if you will. and is a say what do i need do. mit
citizen. i would imagine he's union. i would hope he is. and they tracked down one of mitt romney's sanitation workers. let's give a listen to this audio. >> my name is richard hayes. i pick up mitt romney's trash. we're called the invisible people. he doesn't realize -- a big health issue not picking up trash. residents do come out and shake our hands. sometimes they give us hugs and thank us for the job we're doing. tell us we're doing a good job and keep up the good work. picking up 15, 16 times by hand. that takes a toll on your body. when i'm 55, 60 years old my body will be broke down. romney doesn't care about that. >> not to worry about the -- >> john: he doesn't mean picking up 15, 16 tons at once. i'm kind of slow on these things. >> i hope not. >> john: i think he means cumulatively over a day or a week. that's just from ann's side of the week. i don't know why this guy wasn't invited to speak at the democratic convention. it would have been pretty smart. so this is -- i don't know if it is an ad
. we'll talk about that a little bit later, and talk about mitt romney trying to take down big bird, nobody was really in favor of that, i think. our phone number here is 866-55-press 866-557-7377 and, you know, we're talking about how barack obama is being treated. i have one more clip of john sununu that we didn't play in the last segment. not only did he call the president lazy and unattached but he also said the president needs to learn how to be an american. >> men and women all over america who have worked hard to build their businesses from the ground up is how our economy became the enemy of the world. it is the american way, and i wish this president would learn how to be an american. >> jamal: wow. so learn how to be an american. born in hawaii to a kansas mother. raised by his grandmother, his grandfather was a world war ii veteran, and educated in new york and massachusetts, needs to learn how to be an american, an american president. how about that. let's talk first to betty in california. what do you think? >> caller: i think he has been treated
